We live in turbulent times, which makes many individuals want to simplify their lives. To be sure, the movement toward minimalism may be seen in the fields of home living, environmental consciousness, and mindfulness, but it can also be seen in art and photography.
The minimalist photographer's eye draws the viewer's attention to the ordinary aesthetics, changing them into something remarkable, something inspiring. The resulting pictures are always composed with clear lines and are frequently organized in geometric designs.
Minimalist artists like Maria Svarbova, Maarten Rots, Matthieu Venot, and Natalie Christensen draw inspiration for their work from ordinary life. They might be two-dimensional, abstract compositions or schematic renderings of geography. They are sometimes detailed, and sometimes large-scale. The objective is always to reduce.
